ESX 2022

General Session

Featuring Tony Bridwell


The Story of Hope: Lessons for a Life Well Lived

Life is a collection of stories we tell and consume throughout our day. Interestingly, the story that consumes us also controls us. The sudden and prolonged disruption of the last two years has left many with a story of a diminished sense of hope. In this interactive talk, Tony will reveal the vital lessons that anchor our story of hope, personally, professionally, and even organizationally. Equipped with a simple yet powerful model, attendees will be prepared to navigate life’s most challenging circumstances. Additionally, each person will learn how to leverage the three anchor stories to help us in our efforts to be more effective as coaches, mentors, friends, spouses, partners, followers, and leaders.

Thursday, June 16 | 9:15 – 10:15AM

Leaders too often forget the actual doing part of any strategy is accomplished by people. How people think and feel impacts how they “do strategy.”

How people think and feel drives what they do, and what they do delivers a result.”
